How the
Northwest Connects 

 

Welcome to NoaNet

Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet) is a not-for-profit wholesale telecommunications mutual corporation that has been serving Washington State since 2000. As a mission-driven organization, NoaNet focuses on bringing world-class telecommunications technology to hard-to-reach communities which lack access to high-speed affordable broadband services.

Washington State's Rural Broadband Provider

We are Washington State’s leading wholesale broadband and telecom solutions provider, helping bridge the digital divide and grow communities for over 20 years.

We are a Mission Driven organization

1

Open Access Wholesaler

Our open access network is available on a non-discriminatory basis for competing businesses and service providers to deliver high-capacity broadband and voice services.

Public Benefit Broadband Networks

Community by community, NoaNet provides leading-edge solutions to expand broadband access in telemedicine, agriculture, education, public safety and to support rural economic development opportunities. We are committed to our service providers to deliver the best in industry broadband and over the top solutions to benefit their business and customers.

Owned by Rural Public Utility Districts

Public Utility Districts are not-for-profit community-owned utilities who provide electric, water, sewer and wholesale telecommunications services to customers across Washington State. Like our owners, NoaNet is committed to excellent hometown customer service.
4

A Non-Profit Provider

All revenues from selling wholesale services in the open market are put back into the network to fund our mission and ensure fiscal sustainability. NoaNet does not collect tax dollars or subsidies from water or electrical rate payers.

Public Safety Network

Next Generation 911 services are delivered over our statewide highly-reliable emergency communications dispatch network. This represents a vital step in addressing the urgent need to improve communications for Washington State’s public safety agencies.

It all comes back to the people

Inclusion and concern for others drive our organization. We recognize that broadband is a utility just like those services that came before it, and every community deserves access for an improved quality of life that affects health, safety, enterprise, and education. We see this on an individual level, where access can make a difference and change a life.
